Asbestos Testing Services
Make Sure Your Home & Family Are Safe
If you have a home that was built prior to 1950, there is a good chance that you have parts or materials that contain asbestos. Many home construction materials once contained these fibers, and exposure to asbestos could increase the likelihood of lung disease. The team at HomeTeam Inspection Service has extensive experience testing for the presence of these harmful fibers and can confidently determine if your home contains them.
Thorough asbestos testing will give you peace of mind. Find a home inspection expert near you.
- Some common materials that contain asbestos include:
- Paper and cement products
- Ceiling and floor tiles
Typically, you can’t tell if an item has asbestos simply by looking at it. It’s a good idea to have your home tested for these items by a trained professional if:
- You are planning to build an addition or remodel your home, as this can disturb building materials
- Your home has damaged areas, including crumbling drywall and loose insulation
Not sure if your home or business contains asbestos? The expert team at HomeTeam can take a sample of the material in question and conduct a test. It’s very important that whoever is handling these items has extensive training, takes every precaution, and has the appropriate certification. With us, you can trust that we are fully qualified to handle this job and have all the necessary tools and equipment.

If Your Home Has Asbestos
If it is determined that your home does have asbestos, the area should be immediately contained, especially if the asbestos-containing material is damaged, frayed, or breaking apart. Make sure no one touches the material and keep children and pets away. You should never handle this material yourself, as special protective equipment may be required to ensure the health and well-being of the home’s inhabitants.
